    Free 300mb wifi per day is good enough. Kitchen is well equipped and kept clean, but some shower facility is poor. The hostel itself is just on an average, but Lovely quiet location off the main road, clean, comfortable and tidy, would stay again.

    Lovely room with views of pretty garden, mountains and the occasional hen and rabbit. Immaculate room with very comfortable beds. Very reasonably priced and near amenities and attractions. You can hire bikes too.
